Constructor notes:

ANDREA:

This collaboration with Michael was a bit unusual. I wanted to take common phrases that had a common element like KISS AND TELL / SHOW AND TELL and "swap partners" to make KISSANDSHOW. We had a lot of fun coming up with these. The most unusual was PRIDE is with both PREJUDICE and JOY, which was also a nice 15!
